Ketamine Telemedicine Q&A

What is ketamine?

Ketamine is a dissociative anesthetic most often used as a general anesthetic for surgical procedures. But health care providers also use ketamine to treat chronic health conditions like depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), chronic pain, and anxiety.

Ketamine works by binding to receptors in the brain that block glutamine, a neurotransmitter that sends messages between neurons. By blocking the receptors, glutamate creates new neural; pathways to deliver messages, changing how the brain communicates.

Researchers theorize that the new neural pathways relieve symptoms of depression, PTSD, chronic pain, and anxiety.

StrIVeMD Wellness and Ketamine specializes in psychedelic medicine and offers ketamine therapy to treat these health issues.
